Boomkat Product Review:
Sterling 2nd EP from Public Information's brooding post-punk/industrial duo, engineer Jeremy Lemos and 90 Day Men guitarist/vocalist Brain Case, aka Acteurs. Whilst their first LP was an often propulsive affair, this follow-up is far starker, tense and uncompromising, like an Ike Yard 2.0 steeled for a cybernetically advanced world where 4D seems like the logical next step. There's still a powerful momentum to some of the tracks, but it's suppressed in favour of an overriding spatial dynamic and shifting soundsphere that's potently affective, kinetic in its own right. Eight minute opener 'Pride of Classes' is a prime example, setting Case's droll vocal with strafing modular bassline and glancing, Raime-like drums until the tension bursts with a twisted, screeching denouement at the crucial moment. 'Ewe' takes that aesthetic further, dissolving Case's mutterings into a fractal, elastic web of tekno dub, and 'Honey Bear' could easily be compared with the bleakest moments of Mika Vainio's massive 'Kilo' record. And, just to be contrary, they leave it until final track 'I W I' to give up a groove proper with visceral, corrugated synth shudders and mantra-like vocals. Top stuff.
